Personal experiences and financial decision making - understanding inflation expectations
How do personal experiences shape financial behaviors? What are the long-term effects of economic shocks on individual choices? How are inflation expectations formed? Can behavioral economics help mitigate financial risks? A seminar with Professor Ulrike Malmendier, this year’s recipient of the Skandia Research Award on Long-Term Savings.
Ulrike Malmendier is one of the most cited researchers of her generation in economics and finance. Her research expertise lies in the intersection of economics and finance, and specifically how individuals make biased decisions based on personal experiences (Behavioral Economics). She is interested in how economic shocks, like high inflation or unemployment, affect the economic behavior of individuals who experienced these periods. Her work also includes research on CEO overconfidence.
Moderating the seminar is Hans Malmsten, PhD, Portfolio Manager at Skandia.
